Walmart has teamed up with InComm Payments, a payments technology company, allowing customers to pay their bills or fund prepaid accounts at over 4,700 Walmart locations in the US through VanillaDirect™.

This service enables Walmart shoppers to pay bills or fund accounts in the InComm Payments VanillaDirect network which includes more than 15,000 billers and account providers across a variety of sectors.

According to the press release, the cash payment process is quick and convenient.

Consumers can pay bills and fund a variety of account types at Walmart’s customer service desk or Walmart Money Center. they just need to scan a barcode tied to their account (either via a paper copy or digitally on their mobile device) and completing their payment with cash.

Funds are then transferred electronically through a single consolidated settlement.

This solution is another important milestone in our longstanding relationship with Walmart and our pursuit to provide their customers with leading-edge products and services. VanillaDirect is an excellent addition to Walmart’s payment options that provides their cash-centric customer with a new, convenient and easy-to-use method for paying bills and funding the accounts that support their everyday lives
